Johnny Herbert was one of the most brilliant natural talents to emerge in motor racing, but for all his bravery and prowess, he’s lucky to be alive. After becoming British Junior Karting Champion (losing a finger in the process), then the Formula 3 title for Eddie Jordan in 1987, he was all set for a glittering debut season in Formula 1 when he was caught in a mass pile-up at Brands Hatch.  That horrific crash threatened to end his career, but Herbert made a miraculous recovery, was a hugely popular winner of the British Grand Prix in 1995, and enjoyed 25 years of competitive motorsport. He is the only British driver to win the 2 hours of Le Mans followed by a Grand Prix.

With many years at the top of the iconic sport and having raced all over the world in one of the world’s most glamorous and exclusive sports, he is now one of the most respected commentators on motorsport. Do join us for a special evening where Johnny will be sharing his wealth of experience and stories about legends such as Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost, Damon Hill and Nigel Mansell.
